The vast expanse of outer space has held continuous fascination for all manner of people.
The beauty of star clusters, a nebula, a far distant planet discovered and viewed through the exploration of space photography is beyond description.
As well, graphic images from thousands of light years away almost seem unreal.
As one picture is worth 1,000 words, as the saying goes, following are several magnificent captures from NASA.
